WiFi Manager 3.5.4

April 4, 2015 5 comments

Had to release another update:

Fixed widget layout issues on Android 2.*.

( aside: I only have one phone with 2.3, it’s really old, and barely has enough storage to install my apps for testing, everything’s taken by the automatically updated Google Services, Facebook, Twitter, SoundCloud and all that stuff. Maybe it’s time to drop 2.* support in the next update, if there ever is one. )

Пришлось выпустить ещё одно обновление:

Исправления виджетов для Андроида 2.*.

Categories: releases

WiFi Manager 3.5.2

Fixed some minor issues in widget layouts.

Full 100% rollout in Google Play, now visible from all devices.

Мелкие исправления в раскладках виджетов.

Обновление включено для всех 100% устройств.

WiFi Manager 3.5.0, Bluetooth Widget 2.0

Fixes for Android 5.0+ (static IP and proxy assignments).

New widget styles (Material Design, like Android 5.0+):

– in WiFi Manager they’re part of the “premium package”, and the old “premium” widget themes (Holo Design, Android 4.0) are now free.

– in Bluetooth Widget too (which is still free of course, such a trivial little app).

The WiFi Manager update is currently visible from 50% of all devices, will go to 100% eventually.

Исправления для Андроида 5.0+ (снова работают статические адреса и прокси).

Новые темы виджетов (Материальный Дизайн, как в Андроиде 5.0+):

– В WiFi Manager они являются частью платного “пакета”, при этом предыдущие платные темы стали бесплатными.

– В Bluetooth Widget они тоже есть, и эта простенькая программка по прежнему беспалатна, есссессно.

Обновление WiFi Manager сейчас видно с 50% устройств, но будет докручено до 100%.

Eclipse lockups, adb, Linux, ModemManager

September 24, 2014 Leave a comment

I’ve been seeing Eclipse freeze spontaneously lately, both in Fedora 20 (my daily environment) and Ubuntu 14.04 / 14.10 (separate boot for playing with Android L).


I tracked down the issue (using jstack) to an adb related thread inside Eclipse Android Tools. Doing adb kill-server would end the freeze, until the next time.

Then I had an idea to check the system log the next time it would happen. Interesting. Turns out, ModemManager, a part of NetworkManager (used by both Ubuntu and Fedora for automated network configuration) was:

– recognizing my Android phones as modems
– trying to determine their capabilities
– timing out when doing that (but taking a few seconds to do so)
– and this was causing the adb thread inside Eclipse to wait, freezing the Eclipse UI

Two possible workarounds, I’m using the second one:

– switching USB connect mode in each phone’s settings from MTP (default) to Camera
– adding stuff to udev configuration to blacklist the Android phones from ModemManager‘s automatic detection


# Samsung
SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTR{idVendor}=="04e8", MODE="0666", GROUP="wheel", ENV{ID_MM_DEVICE_IGNORE}="1"
SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTR{idVendor}=="0b05", MODE="0666", GROUP="wheel", ENV{ID_MM_DEVICE_IGNORE}="1"
SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTR{idVendor}=="1004", MODE="0666", GROUP="wheel", ENV{ID_MM_DEVICE_IGNORE}="1"

The ENV{ID_MM_DEVICE_IGNORE}="1" stuff at the end tells ModemManager that the device is not a modem.

PS – to be fair, Android phones can act like modems, when enabled in the phone’s system settings. Why they also look like modems, but don’t respond to commands, even when this setting is off.. Who knows?

PPS – there appears to be no way to uninstall ModemManager from Fedora and keep NetworkManager, too bad.

WiFi Manager 3.1.0

September 24, 2014 Leave a comment

Google made changes last night (September 23), phasing out some stuff —

— which started to prevent WiFi Manager from restoring activation of old, existing, orders, such as when switching to a new phone / tablet.

This version, 3.1.0, fixes the issue. It’s once again possible to activate the app to “premium” state, based on an old order, on a new device.

Прошлой ночью (23 сентября), у Google произошли некоторые изменения —

— и переслала работать активация платных функций WiFi Manager по старым заказам, то есть при переносе на новый телефон / планшет.

Эта версия, 3.1.0, содержит исправления. Активация платных функций на новом устройстве, по старому заказу, снова работает.
